30 years in the making…
For RozeMerie, designing was a predestination. A photograph of her late mother sitting behind a sewing machine inspired her to create pieces for herself throughout her teenage years in Vancouver. RozeMerie enrolled at ESMOD and moved to Paris to study design and pattern making.
With passion, focus, determination and skill, she returned to Vancouver in 1986 and developed Jacqueline Conoir, a line of women’s power suiting and evening wear.
With the same insightful approach, RozeMerie introduced JAC in 2011. JAC reflects RozeMerie’s personal style: chic, contemporary, sensual and detail-oriented. Traveling regularly across the globe fuels her inspiration and creativity, which is manifested in her ability to create timeless modern trends for the urban woman. JAC identifies as accessible luxury: unique design, playful clean lines, versatile and easy to wear with rich fabrics at a moderate price (ex. 100% silk, wool, modal, cashmere and other natural fibers). The JAC woman projects her beauty and feels confident in her everyday life.
She lives freely, projects success and leads by example. Currently the focus is on JAC’s expansion, with already 70 boutiques open overseas since 2014. Our Canadian flagship opened this summer at Oakridge Centre in a beautiful and welcoming 2200 square foot space. With RozeMerie and JAC’s roots being Canadian, more boutiques are on the way in North America. Our staff is knowledgeable and motivated; ready to assist JAC women with their sartorial needs and desires!
